Northwestern University, Center for Legal Studies
Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Scholar
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Illinois, United States|
The Alexander Hamilton Project at Northwestern University in partnership with Northwestern’s Center for Legal Studies, The Jack Miller Center, and with the generous funding of the John Templeton Foundation is pleased to announce a new collaborative partnership. We invite applications for a three-year Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Scholar, beginning August 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2016 to be held in-residence at Northwestern University’s Legal Studies Program.
The visiting post-doctoral fellow will offer three courses a year on topics pertaining to the history and political thought of the American Founding as extensions of the new law, social science and economic thought of the Atlantic Enlightenment. A strong preference will be given to candidates working at the intersections of constitutional innovation, politics and law in the context of the rise of eighteenth century invention and the new understandings of property. Candidates in legal history, the history of political and economic thought, and political theory whose work is historically grounded in the eighteenth century but has significant implications for the contemporary legacies of that empirical ground for questions of constitutionalism, liberty, equality and democracy would be particularly welcome. In addition to engaging in an active research and publishing agenda, the candidate is expected to provide a reasonable amount of assistance with organizing other activities associated with the Alexander Hamilton Project.
